It is useful in
life terms of growing mushrooms, spent mushroom compost retains many
properties that are of benefit in soil improvement.
quantities of spent mushroom compost are therefore used by mainstream
producers of branded soil improver products and this material has been
captured in the surveys of producer supply data.
